Mineralogy: Ruby is the reddish, chromium-enriched variety of corundum. It is usually metamorphic but is occasionally of igneous origin. On the Moh's hardness scale, rubies have a hardness of 9, thus are only surpassed in hardness by diamonds.
Kyanite is a mineral found mainly in metamorphic rocks. It most often forms from the high pressure alteration of clay minerals during the metamorphism of sedimentary rocks. It is found in the schists and gneisses of regionally metamorphosed areas, and less often in quartzite or eclogite.
Metaphysical Properties: Ruby aids in the regeneration of the physical and spiritual heart, strengthens immunity, and increases joyfulness. It is thought to correspond to the Heart and Base chakras and encourage leadership, courage, heightened awareness, and vigor.
Kyanite is said to enhance creative expression, communication, and serenity. It is also thought to facilitate astral or interdimensional travel.
The combination of ruby kyanite is said to have the additional benefits of terminating unhelpful cyclical behaviors, and helping one to manifest their true desires.
